Botox Hair Treatment
Is your hair damaged from everyday life?
Hair takes much more stress than we realise. Depending on where you live, your environment can leave your hair dried out, dull and limp. The years of colouring, straightening, styling and blow drying can take a toll on your hair. Deep conditioning treatments can help, but sometimes you need a little more help.
You know botox for your skin, but have you heard of botox for hair? This treatment is the ticket to giving you healthy hair again! The botox for hair treatment is a popular alternative to the Brazilian keratin treatments.
Just like botox smooths away wrinkles and imperfections in skin, hair botox has a rich formula that acts similarly on your hair. This treatment searches out damaged and dry hair and fills in these areas with this protective formula. Not only does this return your hair to a smooth and healthy state, but it also reinforces it and protects it from the elements—even if these "elements" are just city life, dry climate or daily flat-ironing!
Hair botox vs. Keratin
Many people flock to keratin treatments to straighten their hair. Keratin is a naturally-occurring protein found in hair, skin and nails. This protein and guards against environmental damage, such as humidity, sunlight and daily activities. Keratin treatments, therefore, uses this protein to reinforce hair and to render it to a very straight state that requires little effort for months following the treatment. Keratin treatments are first and foremost used for straightening hair. They can help restore healthy hair, but for very extreme cases of damaged hair, it is not recommended to use keratin.
Although very effective and extremely popular, keratin treatments have small amounts of formaldehyde, which triggers the straightening process. Generally recognized as safe in small doses, some people nevertheless feel uncomfortable putting this chemical on their scalps and worry about the safety of this product.
On the other hand, hair botox treatments are different in their composition and use. While keratin is generally used for straightening, hair botox is used for deep conditioning. Botox restores damaged hair by penetrating the cuticles and filling in gaps, breakages and split ends with its formula. This even works for the most extreme cases of damaged hair!
Ingredients in the hair botox treatments are natural and do not cause the worry that can accompany keratin treatments. Ingredients include a protein-rich concentrate of active ingredients such as collagen, E vitamins B5 and caviar oil, antioxidants and other essential oils. These protect your hair and give it a healthy glow, without the chemical concerns of keratin treatments. There is no formaldehyde in hair botox products.
Why should you use hair botox?
- Hair botox treatments are ecological, natural and safe.
- There are no harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde.
- It is impossible to damage your cuticles with hair botox, unlike keratin which can damage hair if too much is applied, or if the product is too rich in proteins.
- There is no need to wait three days after the treatment to wash your hair.
- Your hair is silky and smooth without any damage to the hair bonds.
- It is cheaper than keratin treatments.
Process of applying hair botox treatments
Only professional stylists should apply this treatment. Hair botox, although safe, still contains chemicals and should be used by trained professionals.
Your stylist will first wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo so that all residue, and open hair shaft cuticles are stripped. Your stylist will then separate your hair into equal sections and the hair product will be applied to the hair and scalp. It will then stay on your hair and soak for approximately 45 minutes so it can properly penetrate your strands and complete its full effect.
When this time is up, your stylist will check your hair for full absorption. Your hair will then be washed with a sulfate-free shampoo, which ensures that none of the product is washed away. The stylist will then carefully blow dry your hair. Finally, a flat iron is used to seal the ingredients and to give your hair a straight, healthy and shiny look. After this, you are free to style your hair as normal! It will be much healthier and your broken ends will be a thing of the past.
It is recommended to wait a day to shampoo your hair. Like keratin treatments, you must use a sulfate-free shampoo, which protects the product on your hair.
For all types of hair
Botox for hair is used by people around the world, from many different backgrounds. While some hair types are not recommended for use with keratin treatments—those with very damaged hair—botox hair treatments do not have this restriction. Botox works on all hair colours and textures, from grey to brunette, blond to black, curly to straight and everything in between.
What are the benefits of botox for hair?
The primary benefit of this treatment is that it repairs your damaged hair and gives it a healthy, shiny luster. Your hair will be revitalised and vibrant, after just one treatment. Botox treatments are relatively quick—the average length takes 45 minutes, which is a small price to pay for healthy hair. This is perfect for a party, wedding or date with your loved one. Because your hair will be healthier, it will also be much easier to style. You will find that hair treated with botox holds curls easier and stays straight longer, depending on the look you choose. Finally, this treatment lasts for approximately two months, and is much less expensive than a keratin hair treatment.
